"If you are a seriously injured Jones Act Seaman - you need to know the facts of life. We give it too you straight. No sugar added. No lawyer talk, no double talk. Just good old fashioned, unsweetened truth." Leading Jones Act Attorney - Bill Turley
The First Step
When handling your work injury case, nothing matters more than the honest truth. Nothing. You must be straightforward and honest about your case. I have seen many instances where a client will sugarcoat their injury and the courts throw out the case. Why? All because they were not honest from the get-go.
The Next Step
If you've been injured on the job, you probably have a ton of questions. I understand. You are concerned about your family and your livelihood. My suggestion is the next step you should take before anything else is to read my book, Win Your Injury Case. I wrote it to help folks like you, good people who got hurt on the job. You can order a free copy and I will cover the shipping too.

Injured While Working For Princess Cruises?
Working on a Princess Cruises ship can be exciting and rewarding. On the other hand, working as a crew member on a Princess Cruises ship can also be very dangerous and downright deadly. Princess Cruises ship crew members are like all Seaman - they work at the mercy of the vessel. Meaning, if the Princess Cruises ship sinks, runs aground or catches on fire or such - - crew members lives are at risk.
Seaman face incredible hazards not faced by ordinary land based workers. Unlike a land based worker, a Seaman can't up and quit if they face unsafe working conditions or unsafe hazards while working. Because of these unique hazards faced by Seaman, Seaman are allowed to sue their employers and the vessel if they are injured while in service for the vessel. Under United States Maritime Law, Seaman can sue their employers based upon General Maritime Law and the Jones Act.
Seaman have the most powerful rights and remedies of any workers in America. Because Seaman work at the mercy of the vessel - Seaman have the right to sue thier employers and the vessel in civil court. Seaman have the right to maintenance and cure, past wage loss, future wage loss, future medical treatment, pain and suffering damages and loss of enjoyment of life damages.
